You could say that FabFitFun is one of the more successful subscription box companies out there - and you wouldn’t be wrong - but I’m guessing that co-founder and co-CEO Daniel Broukhim might not totally agree. That’s because he and his team see FabFitFun as less of a “box company” and more of an “un-boxing” company. What’s the difference? Well not only is FabFitFun all about the joy of discovery that comes with unboxing their monthly (or quarterly) boxes filled with full size lifestyle products, but the FFF experience goes well beyond the box. The company provides exclusive content and products, community features, and even a proprietary augmented reality app. And they’ve clearly struck a nerve with this “unbox” experience. Last year the company did $40M in revenue and grew by 300%, while their headcount grew to 168.
This week we’ve got an in-depth look at one of the most inspiring and authentic company cultures that we've ever come across - Deep River Snacks. If you want to understand Deep River Snacks, look no further than their infamous tagline - “Because we give a chip.” The company makes small-batch, non GMO kettle chips, popcorn, and tortilla chips, but their mission is so much bigger than that. It's about using their amazingly successful, irresistible product as a platform for good.
For most people, it's scarier than dying. Of course, we're talking about public speaking, the most dreaded of all workplace activities. Despite the fear, public speaking is an incredibly useful skill for employees - and not just executives. It's an incredibly efficient way to communicate essential information, and it helps bring a company together. Most of us want to get better, but few know where to start. That's what this episode of Awesome Office is all about - how to become a better public speaker at work.
It's a concept that pops up again and again - in business books, conference keynotes, and even, dare I say, podcasts. But what is Radical Candor? And how do you pull it off with alienating people? (I.e. making people think you are a giant, insensitive weirdo.) In this episode, SnackNation CEO Sean kelly breaks down the theory behind the practice, describes how it will benefit your business, and tells you exactly how to implement it at your organization at every level.
Have you ever wondered where the word 'company' comes from? Most of us use it interchangeably 'business,' but it's not quite the same thing. It's actually a lot simpler than that. The etymology tells us that company is a military term that simply means a body of people. Company = people. Literally. So if people are everything in business, then it's absolutely critical that you hire well. In this episode, Sean gives you the hiring secrets that have served him over the last ten years-plus that he's been running companies.
